Like most property managers in Daytona Beach and even throughout the country, we weren’t sure what to expect after a crazy 2020 that involved a pandemic, shutdowns, economic turmoil, and eviction moratoriums.
For most investors and property owners, it wasn’t as bad as we expected from a business standpoint. Now, we’re looking at 2021 as things are opening back up, more people are being vaccinated, and infection numbers are going down. We may never get back to normal, but we’re heading towards a new version of normal that makes a lot of owners and tenants feel better.
In the Daytona Beach real estate market, demand is high and supply is low. Buyers are making offers that bounce way above the asking price, investors are paying in cash, and the competitive spirit is leading to less-than-ideal conditions such as a trend in waiving home inspections.
What does this mean for the local rental market?
It’s a good time to be renting out property. Tenants remain well-qualified and eager to rent maintained homes. Rental values are increasing and most of a landlord’s competition is coming from new construction multi-family buildings and apartment communities.
